Jessica Lange Confirms Broadway Return In LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

Jessica Lange Confirms Broadway Return In LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHTLegendary stage and screen superstar Jessica Lange confirms her Broadway return as part of a new production of Eugene O'Neill's classic LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT in a new interview conducted in promotion of the upcoming season of her FX horror hit AMERICAN HORROR STORY.

Lange discusses her participation in an upcoming revival of the revered drama, emphatically announcing her return to theatre, stating, "Yes. Absolutely. In fact, we are going to do a production... about ten years ago now, I did a production of what is probably my favorite play ever, of all time, Eugene O'Neill's LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT."

Lange clarifies, "I am planning on doing that sometime in the next year, year and a half, back on Broadway."

Lange originally starred in the play in the West End opposite Charles Dance under the direction of Robin Phillips in 2000. The oft-revived drama also enjoyed a 2003 Broadway revival with Vanessa Redgrave in the role of Mary Tyrone.

The two-time Academy Award-winner adds, "Mary Tyrone is maybe my favorite character that - well, Blanche DuBois and Mary Tyrone - are my favorite characters that I have ever, ever, ever played."

Of course, Lange made her Broadway debut in 1996 playing Blanche DuBois in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, co-starring Alec Baldwin, and has since returned to the Great White Way in another lauded Tennessee Williams masterpiece, THE GLASS MENAGERIE.

Lange instructively observes, "You know, it's wonderful when you are able to create this character and then re-visit it years later."

"So, that's what I'm really looking forward to," she says with a smile.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY Season 3 premieres October 9 on FX.
